What are the delivery times?
To process your transfer, we need to receive your payment first. If you pay with a bank transfer in the UK, it can take up to 1 working day for your payment to reach Azimo’s account. For other European countries, it can take up to 2 workings days. Payments done by card are a much faster option, as they only take a few minutes to reach our account.
Once we have received your payment, we will immediately process your transfer and notify you via email and push notification. A direct to bank transfer to Nigeria is usually processed within 2 hours, even on the weekends.
Please note that it may take longer to process the transfer on public holidays.
What are the minimum and maximum amounts per transfer?
The minimum amount for transferring to Nigeria is 10 GBP and there’s no maximum sending amount. If you need to send higher amounts to Nigeria, we might request additional details from you to process the transfer. This is a standard security check, in accordance with the Know Your Customer (KYC) policy, which is used across the EU and UK to ensure the safety of all money transfers.
Please note that although there is no maximum sending amount, some recipient’s banks have a limit set on how much they can receive, so double check with them before sending.
Can I make a transfer to a company?
You can send money to a company account in Nigeria, both with local direct to bank transfers, or with a SWIFT payment to accounts in either EUR or USD.
Please remember to select the correct type of account when creating your new recipient on your Azimo account.
